Increasing Your Revenue During Dry January - Embracing Alcohol Free Menu Options

Increasing Your Revenue During Dry January - Embracing Alcohol Free Menu Options

Everybody knows January is famous for it’s Dry January campaign, with thousands of people around the world going alcohol free for January. 

Low footfall and selling less alcohol is every bar's worst nightmare, but there are still ways to increase your profits without promoting spirits. 

The first thing to remember is that sober customers exist all year round, and we shouldn’t be neglecting them! There are so many reasons somebody might choose to not consume alcohol from religion, alcoholism, health reasons, being underage, pregnant, designated drivers or maybe they just don’t like the taste! Dry January raises a lot of important points and the first step to increasing your customer range is to embrace that it’s okay to be different.

By offering more exciting options, everybody can feel included and you can boost your sales throughout January and across the entire year! 

flavour Blaster™️ mini with cloche

With 29% of pub visits and 37% of restaurant visits now being alcohol-free, and the low and no alcohol drinks sector predicted to be worth £450m by 2024, it’s important to make the growing number of non-drinkers feel welcome. 

Let’s look at some of the different options you could offer on your menu to increase your alcohol free range without boring soda!

Side note: Whatever alcohol free options you add, you can easily mix or incorporate alcohol so it's the best of both worlds - work smarter not harder!

Artisanal Sodas 

Just because somebody doesn’t want to drink alcohol, doesn’t mean they should miss out on social events due to a lack of options. Many sober individuals find fruit juice or soda from the tap to be a kids option, and find them too sweet or unappealing.

Try offering some more grown up flavours to your range such as elderflower presse or a spicy ginger beer. 

There are so many quirky artisanal soda brands out there waiting to be discovered, with unique flavour combinations. Here are some of our favourites!
